Baltimore honors veterans with parade

Baltimore will honor veterans with a parade and ceremony in the War Memorial Plaza.

Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown, a colonel in the U.S. Army Reserves, and Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake will participate in the events Friday morning recognizing the sacrifices of veterans from all branches of the Armed Forces.

The annual Veterans March sets off from Charles and Monument streets at 10 a.m. A ceremony will be held at War Memorial Plaza at 11 a.m.

The ceremony includes a citywide moment of silence and ringing of the bells to mark the 11th hour of the 11th day on the 11th month, on Nov. 11, 1918, when the world agreed that World War I must be the war to end all wars.
